Groups We Support
SURJ encourages those with the ability to donate and participate in direct action to amplify the ongoing work led by people of color. Here are a few to which we direct supporters. This list is meant as a starting place, not an exclusive set of recommendations.
Southerners On New Ground (SONG)
Southerners On New Ground (SONG) is a regional Queer Liberation organization made up of people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, people with disabilities, working class and rural and small town, LGBTQ people in the South. We believe that we are bound together by a shared desire for ourselves, each other, and our communities to survive and thrive. We believe that Community Organizing is the best way for us to build collective power and transform the South. Out of this belief we are committed to building freedom movements rooted in southern traditions like community organizing, political education, storytelling, music, breaking bread, resistance, humor, performance, critical thinking, and celebration.
ATL for All is a community based city wide organization with the goal to grow the progressive electorate in Atlanta. We work to empower the new majority in Atlanta of people of color, women, lgbtq community, workers, immigrants and young people to express their power through voting for progressive changes. With your help we can engage more people in the political process and increase our ability to shape the city’s future as an equitable, just, sustainable, creative, positive place that works for all of us!
